Protect the Okefenokee

We’re fighting a reckless plan to mine 8,000 acres on the edge of Georgia’s Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. The proposed project threatens the water levels and health of one of the most wild, pristine, and ecologically intact places in America.

TAKE ACTION

Protect South Memphis from more fossil fuels

The Tennessee Valley Authority’s reckless plans to build another polluting methane gas plant in South Memphis puts the climate and nearby neighborhoods at risk. The Biden administration must protect South Memphis communities by putting a stop to this dangerous gas plant proposal and telling TVA to invest in safer clean energy solutions instead.

TAKE ACTION

Tell NC legislators to protect wetlands.

The NC legislature’s removal of wetlands protections will worsen the effects of floods, threatening lives and costing millions of dollars in damage and lost business. Speak up to save wetlands. 

TAKE ACTION

Save the South’s disappearing wildlife

The Recovering America’s Wildlife Act is an historic opportunity to invest in wildlife conservation efforts and prevent species from needing emergency protections or reaching their crisis point. Tell Congress to protect wildlife and save Southern species from slipping away.

TAKE ACTION

Protect old-growth forests

It‘s essential that we protect old growth, as well as the mature forests and aging trees that are next in line to become old growth and are already providing immense carbon and biodiversity benefits. Sign the petition to protect old-growth forests.

TAKE ACTION

Keep Virginia Scenic

Rolling ridges. Sparkling streams. More than 150 miles of trails. Creating Shenandoah Mountain National Scenic Area would permanently protect this breathtaking landscape in the George Washington National Forest so that it can be enjoyed for generations to come.

TAKE ACTION

Speak Out for Environmental Justice

Urge your elected officials to support the Environmental Justice for all Act, the most far-reaching Congressional bill yet to address the outsize burdens low-wealth and communities of color face when it comes to pollution and other environmental harms.

Take Action

Cut Carbon Not Forests

We are at a critical moment in the fight against climate change, but cutting our forests and burning them for energy just doesn’t make sense.
